A recap of December news

While we wait for a snowstorm to move up from New York and into the Boston area, I thought I’d provide a quick recap of some December Fletcher news.

First, we’ll be joined this month by the Honorable Mikheil Saakashvili, former president of the Republic of Georgia and founder of Georgia’s United National Movement Party, who will be a Senior Statesman in residence, delivering lectures on European governance and other contemporary international and regional issues.

And Fletcher is also the home to a new journal on security issues.  The Fletcher Security Review was started by a group of students, and is a natural addition to the already wide range of activities connected to the study of international security here.

And now, breaking news that (while I was writing the three brief paragraphs above) we learned that Tufts University (and Fletcher along with it) will close at 2:00 p.m. today, and will remain closed all day tomorrow because of the snowstorm.  On Monday, the Admissions Office will be attending a full-day off-site meeting.  We’ll all be back in the office on Tuesday for those last minute application questions.
